Heavy smoke continues to pour from peat fires in Sumatra, Indonesia. On October 4, 2015, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASAs Terra satellite captured this image of smoke streaming over southern Sumatra. Red outlines indicate hot spots where the sensor detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fires. Gray smoke hovers over the island and has triggered air quality alerts and health warnings in Indonesia and neighboring countries.
